I took a Mediterranean trip, but never left the dining room

Have you used up a big stack of post-it notes, flagging all the stamp sets that you love, that you can't live without, that must come live in your house immediately? The new Occasions catalog from Stampin' Up! is definitely a trouble maker, unless Santa left you an envelope stuffed with large wads of cash! I know want everything in this book, including the set with all the bugs. . . you will see it here, but it may take a few weeks.

Today I am sharing the Mediterranean Moments stamp set. Four sketches that cry out to be colored--with colored pencils! So I used the new Stampin' Up! Water Color Pencils. These cards need a sentiment, for sure, but I will wait until the need arises, stamp the sentiment and pop the card into the mail. So even though they look a bit naked now, the sentiment will get added before shooting out into snail mail.

I have added a class to the calendar that includes the pencils and this stamp set, so join me and you can learn a few techniques, try out the different papers, inks and coloring mediums. If you can't make it on my scheduled date, let me know and we can pick date for you to have an event for your friends!

Here is the class info: Water-Coloring Made Wonderful! Tuesday March 7 at 7 pm: Try our Stampin’ Up! NEW water color pencils, paint with re-inkers, and use artist style water color paints and aqua painters. Paper and inks matter – experiment with Whisper White card stock, water color paper, Shimmer White and Color Card stock to find your fave. Why use Momento black ink? When do you need Stazon black ink? Why does Stampin’ Up! Offer Archival black ink? Take home a fact sheet to help keep it all straight.
Class fee includes fact sheet, Mediterranean Moments Stamp Set, 12 card fronts: $30
Deluxe Class fee includes fact sheet, Mediterranean Moments Stamp Set, 12 card fronts, plus colored pencils, ½ pack Shimmer White card stock and Sale-a-Bration item of your choice: $60

Remember that it is Sale-a-Bration time here, so if you are loving this Mediterranean Moments, and you order the Water Color Pencils to go with it, then you select some Shimmer White paper or a Momento Black ink pad for safe watercoloring, you will be right at that sweet-spot where you have earned a free product from the Sale-a-Bration brochure! You might love the black & white DSP that is just waiting to be colored, since you are also ordering those great pencils! Or the fantastic Hey, Chick birds that are pecking to be colored! Either way--you're a winner!!

Happy Stampin',
Dee Tollaksen
